Hey Pandas, What Are Facts That You Think Are Fun? (Closed)
Fun fact! Share them all.
Alright, here you go.
Vultures are seperated into two categories, based on geographic location. Old world vultures live in Africa, Europe, and Asia, and New world vultures live in North and South America. Now, one would tend to think that these two categories are related. But they're not! Old world and New world vultures evolved separately into similar species, which is called convergent evolution.
Crows hold "funerals" for their dead, and will recognize and "attack" people they believe to have harmed a crow.
Baby rabbits are called kittens, female rabbits are called does, and male rabbits are called bucks.
Plants can learn things! A study done on Mimosa plants, which curl up when threatened proved this. A researcher dropped the plants down a metal chute, and while at first they curled up, eventually the stopped, recognizing the chute wasn't a threat. Three weeks later, the plants were dropped again, and still didn't curl their leaves.
There’s too many facts for me to choose from so I’ll just say these:
1) If it weren’t for the Moon, the Earth’s axis would constantly be changing and it wouldn’t be stable.
2) Mars had the potential to develop its own life but the inner core shut down and the magnetic field got weak to the point where all the water evaporated from the surface and the solar radiation became even more intense on Mars.
3) There may come a time in the future where the Earth will rotate at the same rate at which the moon will make 1 revolution around the earth. It simply means that the moon will appear stationary in the sky in one place and it won’t appear to move at all.
4) Pluto’s orbit kind of clips into Neptune’s orbit at one point so it technically becomes the ninth planet again whenever it reaches that point. This is because according to the IAU, a planet must be round, orbit the sun and its gravity must be strong enough to make sure that there is no debris in its orbit. Pluto failed the last requirement so it is a dwarf planet but Neptune’s orbit is clear of debris so when Pluto gets to that point in its orbit, it becomes the ninth planet again briefly
5) Pluto has a subsurface ocean of water and it also has all the elements and compounds necessary for life so there might be a chance that Pluto’s oceans can hold life. Same goes for Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
6) Saturn’s moon Titan is one of the only few known bodies in the solar system that has liquid on its surface. It has liquid methane and there’s a chance that there can be life based on methane instead of carbon there.
7) A year in Venus is shorter than its day because it spins very slowly
8) Venus is actually spinning upside down relative to us
9) Venus also could’ve had life but the climate change caused by the sun caused all the water to evaporate and since water vapour is a greenhouse gas, it trapped more heat causing more water to evaporate and so on until Venus got to this point. This will happen to earth
The Joker's appearance is based on the actor Conrad Veidt's appearance in the film The Man Who Laughs 1928.
Competitive art used to be in the Olympics. Between 1912 and 1948, the Olympic Games awarded medals in sculpture, music, painting, and architecture, according to Smithsonian magazine. After a heated debate in the post-war years, the competitions were scrapped. John Copley of Britain won one of the final medals: At 73, he would be the oldest medalist in Olympic history if his silver, awarded for his 1948 engraving Polo Players, were still counted.
Omg!!! One of the earliest uses—perhaps the earliest use—of "OMG" appeared in a letter to the then-member of Parliament, as The Atlantic reports. In 1917, British Navy Admiral John Arbuthnot Fisher wrote to Winston Churchill about rumors of new titles that would soon be bestowed. "I hear that a new order of Knighthood is on the tapis," he wrote. "O.M.G. (Oh! My God!)—Shower it on the Admiralty!" OMG, indeed.
A chef's hat has exactly 100 pleats. A chef's tall hat (officially known as a "toque") is traditionally made with 100 pleats, meant to represent the 100 ways to cook an egg.
Uranus is large and gassy.
I have seen Uranus through a telescope.
Uranus has rings around it.
- The eiffel tower can be 15 cm taller during the summer
- Australia is wider than the moon
- Sudan has more pyramids than anywhere in the world
- There are parts of Africa in all 4 hemispheres
- Jupiter doesn't actually orbit the sun since it's so big. It actually orbits the same point the sun orbits. (That may just be a theory, not positive)
I have more, but that's all for now.
A group of ferrets is called a business, and a group of pandas is called an embarrassment!
One I heard yesterday. Virgin births in the animal world are possible. There is a crocodile that has just reproduced despite being in captivity (without males) their whole life. It's an extension on evolution that is not unheard of in other animals but this is the first crocodile known to do so.
A group of crows is called a murder
Ppl can eat upside down.
A good party trick, hanging from something and eating cake while everybody looks in surprise at you.
Only females can replicate themselves, as females have a complete set of chromosomes that give them the ability to replicate themselves entirely and the unit (uterus) to complete the replication, and males only have half of the chromosomes needed to produce either a male or female offspring. While naturally it requires a sperm to create conception, the likelihood of a human man to have male offspring is still a 50-50 c**p shoot, but when female chromosomes are used for conception, the offspring will always be a female.

The oldest “off-air” television recording known to exist was captured in 1938 on film from a television screen by some RCA engineers in New York. However this recording wasn’t of American television, but of a BBC broadcast from the UK. Due to freak atmospheric conditions at the time, the BBC’s television transmissions actually made it across the Atlantic Ocean to New York. Also, these RCA engineers were able to film these transmissions because the TV they were using was a set made by was the British Marconi Company which they had imported into the USA. This recording also happens to be the oldest surviving recording of pre-World War 2 television, since most of the BBC’s film was melted down to recover the silver it contained during the war.
One more television related one: The person with most total airtime on television is a woman named Carole Hersee. Her father , George Hersee, was an engineer at the BBC in the 1960s and had Carole pose for a picture in 1967. This picture was used to create the famous Test Card F, which the BBC still uses variants of to this day. Since the BBC used to broadcast this test card in off-air hours, Carole has amassed an astonishing 70,000+ hours of total broadcast time over the last 56 years.
